Top 14 Baby Bassinets in Australia 2021

Choosing a baby bassinet or co sleeper is one of the harder choices you'll make as a new parent. It's often made without a lot of knowledge of what your baby is going to be like, how they'll sleep in a co sleeper bassinet and what kind of approach you'll take to sleep as a family.

For some families, they prefer to keep their baby close in a co-sleeping arrangement to provide easy access for settling and feeding. For others, they like to establish a space for the baby that's their own, with calming surroundings that make it easy to promote the beginnings of self settling.

Either way having a baby bassinet or co sleeper means you can decide all of these decisions once you baby is born.

Safety warning for bassinets:

It should be noted that healthcare professionals recommend that your baby sleep in your room for the first year of their life, or at least until they are six months old, as it helps to greatly reduce the risk of sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI) including SIDS and fatal sleeping accidents.

Also, it is recommended that there should be nothing else in the bassinet while your baby is sleeping besides a mattress and a fitted sheet. That means no toys of any kind, no bumpers, comforters or pillows as they can pose a potential SIDS risk, according to Red Nose Guidelines.

What should you be looking for in a baby bassinet?

What you'll need from a baby bassinet or co sleeper depends entirely on a few different variables. It's important to sit down with your partner before your baby arrives and try to work out how you would like to approach sleep, while factoring details surrounding your space, your birth and your family arrangements.

Co sleeper bassinet:

Many parents opt for a co sleeper bassinet for their new baby as a way of keeping them close in the first few months. This is a good way to ensure easy access for overnight feeds and for re-settling. Many co sleeping bassinets feature an open side that lines up to the side of your bed, so that they are effectively sleeping in a small extension off the side of your bed.

Smart bassinet:

Smart bassinets such as the Snoo are making a big impact in the world of baby bassinets, as they provide real time reactions to baby's cries and movements, helping to re-settle and take some of the pressure off parents. Smart bassinets also connect to an app that provides real time data on night wakings and quality of sleep, which can help parents paint a picture of a baby's sleeping patterns.

Swivel bassinet:

Swivel bassinets are an innovative option for many parents, but especially those who have undergone a Caesarean birth. The procedure and resulting wound - not just from a C-section birth, but also a regular birth that might require stitches - means that easy access to your baby without straining is essential.

Special features:

Many baby bassinets or co sleepers come with an array of features designed to help settle a baby. When looking to purchase a bassinet, it's a good idea to speak to family and friends about which features they deem worthwhile, so you can determine which you would actually use. Some features include vibration, lullabies, nursing alarm (to stop you from falling asleep during feeding) and a built in light.

The 14 best baby bassinets of 2021:

1. Edwards & Co Baby SnüzPod4, $495.00

This bassinet is the ultimate option for parents who want to keep their baby close in a comfortable and safe environment.

What makes the SnüzPod4 different?

The SnüzPod4 features dual-view mesh windows and a half-height zip-down wall for easy access, so that you can use it as a co-sleeping bassinet if you wish to have your baby within arms reach. You can also use the SnüzPod4 as a standalone bassinet anywhere in the room. The bassinet can also be lifted off the legs and moved into any part of the house with ease. Better still, a handy reflux leg allows you to prop up the bassinet at an angle, creating an elevated base to help combat the signs of reflux and help your baby enjoy a more restful sleep.

Why try the SnüzPod4?

The unique mesh vents allow air to pass through the crib at surface level where your baby rests. The SnüzPod4 helps regulate your baby's temperature with its innovative ComfortAir system. A combination of unique air-flow vents, air-permeable mesh liner, and base ventilation designed to increase airflow and breathability for a great night’s sleep, all around.

Real customer reviews:

“Absolutely love the snuzpod! We bought this when our little one was about 4 weeks old after struggling to find the right thing for him. Everything about it works for us! The fold down side means we can keep an eye on the baby at night and comfort him quickly if he is stirring without getting out of bed. We use the base of the snuzpod to keep blankets and a change of clothes and the shape allows us to gently rock the baby to sleep. What's even better is that the sleepyhead fits inside! It's not only helped our little one to sleep but has changed night time for us too knowing he is safe, close by and comfortable!” - RosieMcInerney

5. Bloom Alma Mini Crib Cot in Coconut White, RRP: $699

Real review: Austin Wright, amazon.com

"We bought this crib because we planned to have baby in our room for up to a year, and I wanted him in a solid wood, organic mattress, chemical-free, good air circulation, crib-like environment without putting a full-size crib in our room (because a full size would take up way too much room in our small master).

Alma Bloom mini crib was the answer and we absolutely LOVE it. This is our third baby but first mini crib and I'm kicking myself for not getting this with my first two kids. When I purchased I actually disliked that it was on wheels, because I didn't like the aesthetic and I didn't think I would actually move it around the house much. I was 100% wrong. I love being able to wheel the crib out into our living/dining/kitchen space in the morning. It easily fits through doorways/around tight corners. Thanks to this crib, baby takes all his naps in the heart of the hustle and bustle of our home, which means I can keep an eye on him constantly if I want to, and he learns to sleep through noise (a necessity with two rambunctious big siblings). I also love that I can roll it right next to my bed in the middle of the night, then push it back into the corner if it's in the way during midnight nappy changes."

The best features:

The Alma Mini Urban Crib is all about style, mobility and storage.

  • Modern design, solid wood mini-crib sized for urban living spaces.
  • Bassinet with extended use as mini-crib, comfortably up to 12 months (longer usage dependant upon baby’s size).

10. SNOO Smart Bassinet, RRP: $1,303.50 USD

Real review: Laura, happiestbaby.com.au

"Life saver! Sleep saver! The Snoo had our baby sleeping basically through the night from day one. Only waking for feeds. Her older brother didn’t have the Snoo and when he was little we had to be up all night settling and rocking him. The Snoo let us give us baby what they need and then put them down so we can sleep.
The transition using the weaning function was so easy, little one transferred to cot at 7 months without a hitch. Thank you, Snoo!"

11. HALO Bassinest Premiere Series Swivel Sleeper, $399.95

Real review: Emi, productreview.com.au

"So glad that we opted for this bassinet as it has been amazingly convenient and safe! I ended up having a emergency caesarean and the swivel feature was a godsend... Instead of painfully moving in and out of bed each time bubs needed a feed I could simply pull the bassinet in towards me and lean down on the side (it has a spring edge that lowers for you to pick baby up) and feed him without leaving the bed. The fabric and over all design is really modern and chic... It blended so nicely into our bedroom. The mesh sides are also a great safety feature as you can easily see bub and don't have to worry about air flow (especially when they start to roll into strange positions). Our boy is quite big and he still fits in it and he is nearing 6 months old. The only downside is that it is very heavy to move and may prove a little bulky in the way of storage as the legs are quite large. I would definitely recommend this bassinet!"

Best features:

The HALO Bassinest is an all round perfect bassinet for new parents no matter how you give birth and whatever your preferred sleeping arrangements.

  • Baby is visible at eye level for easy soothing, while mesh walls provide maximum breathability
